Atech Selects Vortex OpenSplice for Brazilian Air Traffic Control Simulation Platform

Vortex OpenSplice provides real-time data sharing capabilities for aircraft flight simulation within Atech’s SAGITARIO ATC training program

Vortex OpenSplice software platform has been selected by Atech for the Brazilian Air Traffic Control (ATC) training simulation system.  Vortex will be used as the data sharing layer for the PLATAO (simulation system for air traffic controllers training).

For Atech, key features of Vortex OpenSplice are its support for automatic discovery, shared memory architecture, configurable Quality-of-Service (QoS) framework and portability of the platform, which together enable system-wide scalability and save valuable development time, particularly when integrating legacy systems.  With the use of PrismTech’s world-class tooling and professional services, Atech is able to successfully meet stringent development milestones.

"Vortex OpenSplice provides significant performance capabilities in our solution," said Fabio Cocchi S. Eiras, Project Director at Atech, a subsidiary of Embraer Defense & Security.  "We were specifically interested in a data sharing platform based on the Data Distribution Service standard because of its proven performance, reliability and security, and Vortex delivers the right DDS-based solution for our requirements."

Vortex OpenSplice is a key component of the Vortex Intelligent Data Sharing Platform, a suite of interoperable Internet of Things (IoT) enabling technologies based on the Object Management Group’s (OMG) Data Distribution Service (DDS) for Real-time Systems standard.  Vortex provides secure, real-time data connectivity independent of network configuration (LAN or WAN, wired, wireless, mobile) or underlying platform technologies.  It can be used by applications to enable seamless data sharing across server, embedded, web, mobile, fog and cloud environments.
